Are you looking for a big, bombastic opener or closer for your next symphony orchestra concert? Do you need a contrasting piece to a delicate Debussy impression and want to stay "French"? Are you too pooped to "Pomp"? This composition, in a bold march style with a short fugal exposition in the middle, will work for you. Your students will enjoy the opportunity for their sections to shine and your audience will remember the energetic build to the final climactic chords.
